"Third International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ljubljana"
2000-06-23 until 2000-09-24
Manifesta 3
Ljubljana, , SI Slovenia

Manifesta 3 will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It is a place on the border of Fortress Europe. It is 'former Eastern Europe', it aims to be Western. It is close to ethnic turmoil, yet refined in its cosmopolitanism. It is off the centre, it is the centre - depending on where one stands. Manifesta 3 should explore the paradoxes of borderlining and strategies of protection. It positions itself at the crossing point of art and society in a challenging place. An art exhibition in this context, under these conditions, is not another show to be visited. It is also a trajectory of thought, speech and action. Not simply a place to be, but a process to engage with.

Manifesta is a new European biennial of contemporary art, held for the first time in Rotterdam in the summer of 1996. Manifesta is a travelling exhibition, taking place every two years in a different European city. It is the first real endeavour in the field of contemporary art to respond to the political and social changes arising out of recent developments on the European continent.

Emerging into a Europe undergoing radical change, Manifesta aims to harness the new artistic energies and to establish a network of exchange covering the whole of Europe. Because of its nomadism Manifesta is a work in progress, constantly enriched by the cultural contexts it encounters in city after city, each one different and unique. But Manifesta is also an instrument of cross-border communication and dialogue, weaving an increasingly dense fabric of relations between artists, curators, critics and others active in the contemporary art world.
